Laying of foundation stone marks care home milestone

26 November 2021

We're building a new, state-of-the-art care home on the site of the former Bennerley School in Cotmanhay, near Ilkeston.


Letitia Wright, Cllr Carol Hart, Robert Stobo from Wates Construction and Amanda Dickinson.

To mark progress on the build, Cabinet Member for Health and Communities Councillor Carol Hart laid a foundation stone on Monday 22 November 2021 alongside Letitia White, Hazelwood Care Home unit manager and Amanda Dickinson, service manager.

The building work is being carried out by Wates Construction and the project is on target for completion next summer.

Letitia said that she and her team are excited about moving into Bennerley Fields and are embracing the changes ahead with positivity.
